Oddly enough, we're looking at this kind of thing right now. I also
just got a message from my ILL Librarian that she saw a great conference
presentation on this kinda thing by Scott Bertagnole of Brigham Young
From our perspective, the trick is authentication. We want to at least
use Common Credentials with our University authentication system, rather
than Yet Another Account to Remember (YAAR!), if not Single Sign-on, but
we also need to support the other 4 colleges in our consortium, as well
as community borrowers. Getting course data about students is also
tricky, since we need to collaborate with other units on campus to get
permission to sanely and securely access this data from the registrar.
I'm envisioning three levels of integration:
1. Catalog + ILL to see what materials you have
2. Course reserves and supporting materials
3. Miscellaneous/experimental integrations with other services
Hope this is useful; I'd love to keep this conversation going, whether
on list or off.

E.g. student logs in, the site presents books due dates, room reservations, course list with associated course readings, subject librarians. For faculty members, the site might present other information, such as how to put material on course reserves, deposit material into institutional repository, etc. Has anyone looked into this, or tried it?
